ARCHIVE: LOOKING AT CARS 18 – SUNRISE BEHIND PARKED VAN

 

 


.
Walking into the sunrise, walking towards a van, walking home.  At first the glare from the sun was totally dazzling, I was in a world of blinding highlights and impenetrable silhouettes.  But as I moved into the van’s shadow, there appeared this view in through its dew-soaked windscreen.

The steering wheel is at lower left, and one of the black wiper blades at lower right.  The circular black spot attaches the faintly seen rear view mirror to the inside of the windscreen, and there are also the vague outlines of seats with headrests and the illuminated panes of its rear windows – through which the sun is shining onto the inside of the windscreen.

OUTER SUBURBS 282 – WET MORNING AT THE SUPERMARKET

 

 


.
Sitting in my car, in a supermarket car park on a wet morning >>>  FATman Photos takes you to some exotic places, there’s no denying that …   Anyway, here’s the view through my car’s wet window.

There are the supermarket’s white emergency exit doors, and a bollard to prevent the over-enthusiastic driving straight in through those doors; then there’s a yellow container full of salted grit in case of ice; and, on the right, one of the columns – looking somewhat the worse for wear, it has to be said – that supports the structure of the building.

ARCHIVE: LOOKING AT CARS 15 – WHITE CAR (MONO)

 

 


.

White car with its boot open, Broad Street, central Bristol; 16 Aug 2013.

I guess that here I’m attempting something abstract and different, trying out an idea.  I was approaching this car through a covered alleyway, the open end of which framed it.

The car is stark – pure (i.e. completely blown) white highlight, pure black windows, and a very few more middling tones.  And, as a foil to its immaculate, streamlined lines, it has its open boot stuck up in the air at an acute angle.

And then, in this abstract composition, other, somewhat less pale, elements are set in the enveloping blackness.  Most notably, the pale column coming downwards from the top of the frame (where is cut by the dark lines of a grill) to intersect the car’s black back window.  Then there are the two white rectangles on the pavement below the car, and the less obtrusive white elements left and upper left of the car.

This is a simplification of reality and an attempt at graphic design.

GARDEN 73 – A WONDERFUL ENCOUNTER 2

Robin in our front garden.  Another image, and the full story of this encounter, are here (opens in a separate window).

The composition here is a little awkward, but I do like those leaves up in the top left corner!

Technique: Z 6 with 70-300 Nikkor lens used in DX (= APS-C) format to give 450mm; 3200 ISO; spot metering; Lightroom, starting at the Camera Landscape v2 profile; south Bristol; 22 Sept 2020.
